Report-Anjali Singh Rajput
Luck now. The Nawabs of Lucknow were as royal as their pastimes. This is the reason why the Nawabs of this place did not play with the colors of a pitcher or a bucket, but rather they were kept in silver plates and bowls filled with colors. Hence people used to pick up and throw colors on each other and celebrate Holi. Evidence of this is found in the shop of a Chowk silversmith whose name is Panna Lal. Even today, the rare Holi items used by Nawab Asafuddaula, Nawab Saadat Ali Khan and Nawab Wajid Ali Shah of Lucknow are kept here.
1- The color is always on the plate
Even today, the color of this period is applied to the royal silver plate. It is said that on the day of Holi, Nawab Asafuddaula’s wife used to bring colors to him in this plate and used to take the color out of this plate and apply it to him first. After that Nawab would also color his wife with that plate and after that he would take that plate outside and color others.
2- The color has been preserved in this bowl
During the time of the Nawabs, different colors were kept in these royal silver bowls. This arrangement was specially designed for all Begums. All the Begums and other women in the palace played with the colors in these bowls.
